2.0 out of 5 stars Wildlife Art and Photography
This is shown in colour yet it is in black and white when it arrives. Not an honest way of doing business.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy a visual treat, feed a deer, 9 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Wildlife Art and Photography: Buy a Book, Feed a Deer! (Kindle Edition)
There's a surprising amount in this ebook:- paintings and the photographs that inspired them, and it's all top quality stuff: A beautiful book not only for artists, photographers and wildlife enthusiasts, but for anyone who appreciates beauty.

A variety of different painting styles are represented, with descriptions by the artists of their individual process. Each painting is accompanied by the photo that it was based on - interesting to see how the artists have interpreted and/or adapted the reference material. There are also two step-by step painting demonstrations in case you aspire to wildlife painting yourself.

The photographers have explained where and how their images were captured, with brief but essential technical details to delight camera buffs. In reality, this should be a glossy coffee table book, but you can enjoy these gorgeous wildlife images on Kindle or PC. Not only that, but all proceeds are going to support a Deer Sanctuary. Art, science and good deeds. What's not to love (especially if you've ever seen a muntjac)?

5.0 out of 5 stars Cannot believe the price!!, 9 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Wildlife Art and Photography: Buy a Book, Feed a Deer! (Kindle Edition)
First of all look at the price!!! It isn't a case of why buy it far more a case of why wouldn't you buy it! The proceeds will go to the South West Deer Rescue & Study Centre a very worthy cause which is run and financed out of the pocket and pension of Mike Cage, so even if that is not good enough reason, then I need to also mention the content!! This publication is packed full of both wonderful paintings and photos taken from a super site called Paint my Photo, the brain child of Roy Simmons, co-editor of the book. The site is a unique mix of artists and photographers.. the photographers generously give permission to artists to paint their images and this book showcases some of that wonderful collaboration and co-operation. The book features many of the wildlife images and paintings which are part of the daily feast which can be viewed on the site but more than that features an insight into the thoughts behind both the images and paintings with questions and answers from the photographers and artists. There are also a couple of step by step paintings generously supplied by Maria Balcells which in isolation are worth more than the purchase price. If you would like to see a beautiful book full of joy and inspiration, look no further, you will not be disappointed!!!

Packed full of beautiful art work and photographs with many useful tips and insights in to work processes, at this price it is extraordinary value and 100% of royalties go to such a worthy cause too. What's not to like.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book, great cause!, 9 Mar. 2014

This review is from: Wildlife Art and Photography: Buy a Book, Feed a Deer! (Kindle Edition)
A marvellous insight into how artists and photographers come together to create great wildlife art. There is a lot of content here for such a low price. It's worth the price for the step by step features alone. Also a great resource for other wildlife artists and photographers and if you have any interest in the subject there's no real reason not to buy this book.

Cannot rate this book highly enough, so full of information at such an excellent price. What's more, it's all for a very worthy cause. Have learnt a lot from it, both from the photographers and artists points of view. Highly recommended!

This review is from: Wildlife Art and Photography: Buy a Book, Feed a Deer! (Kindle Edition)
This makes an interesting read as I am already a member of 'Paint my Photo' but have not painted many of the wildlife photos. It is interesting to see the different versions created by various artists and to read how and why they created their piece of art. Having the information from the photographer also adds to the interest, rather than just seeing a photo that someone has re-created. An added bonus is the fact that the sales of this book go to help a worthy cause - feeding deer!

This review is from: Wildlife Art and Photography: Buy a Book, Feed a Deer! (Kindle Edition)
Anyone who has any interest in photography, art and/or wildlife will love this ebook. As well as beautiful wildlife photography and artwork in a range of mediums and styles you get an insight into the thought processes and inspiration behind each piece which is something we aren't normally privy to when we view a photograph or piece of artwork - for anyone interested in watercolour techniques there is a wonderful step by step - and all this for such a low price!!! All proceeds are going to a wonderful cause and will make such a difference - I can't think of any reason why you wouldn't buy it!
